Citrus Salmon with Lemon Garlic Broccolini

This salmon was supposed to be this Citrus-Marinated Salmon recipe from a Magazine page that we saved (which is even missing a page number, much less a title) but we ended up not having some of te ingredients, so we kind of made it up as we went along. The broccolini recipe was mostly from the back of the broccolini bag.  Both turned out yummy. We also had added red potatoes with simple olive oil, salt and rosemary for the side.





Ingredients:

Salmon:
Salmon Filet, about 2 lbs
2 limes, sliced into thin rings
2 tablespoons olive oil
chopped fresh dill
chopped fresh parsley
chopped chives, about 2 large stems
salt and pepper

Broccolini:

1 lb of broccolini
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt
pepper

Directions:

Salmon:

1. Preheat oven to 250 F
2. Place salmon skin down on a cooking sheet with either a silicon cooking mat (LOVE) or foil.
3. Sprinkle salmon with salt, pepper, dill, parsley and chives. Pour olive oil over it.
4. Place lime rings all overlapping the salmon.
5. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until flaky and cooked.

Broccolini:
1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Chop off about 1 inch of the broccolini stems. Place them in an alternating pattern on a cookie sheet
3. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix, and pour evenly over the broccolini.
4. Bake for about 10 minutes until done. 

What we liked:

This was a great dish that came together nicely even though we didn't end up following the original recipe plan. 

What we didn't like:

Nothing, it was great. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He actually liked the fish, though not all the "green stuff" on it. Astrid, LOVES salmon.
